Water and ice by Zaria Forman

Water and ice by Zaria Forman

Water and ice by Zaria Forman

Zaria Forman is a very talented artist, who creates exciting pastel drawings. She is called the “Queen of the Icebergs”. Ice and water in her pictures look incredibly realistic. This series of pictures is called “Chasing The Light”.
Zaria can be considered a hero of our time, because she not only draws wonderful pictures, but also actively promotes environmental protection. Her pictures urge people to pay attention to environmental problems. Global warming occurs because of human activity. Icebergs, huge amounts of water, are melting at an unprecedented rate. If all icebergs turn into water, humanity will cease to exist!
Art can be not only beautiful, but also useful for mankind. People must reflect on the fragility of the world and take the right decision.
Zaria’s pictures are exhibited in galleries throughout the United States and overseas.

Lisa lost her vision in 1993. “I lost not only vision, but also the independence, and the meaning of life,” she said. Of course Lisa was depressed. It’s incredibly difficult to become totally dependent on others if you were strong and independent before. At first it may seem that a person has lost the meaning of life together with his ability.
Lisa tried to work in the garden, play the piano. But she was so depressed that often didn’t even get out of bed.
One day her husband Al brought home children’s watercolor paints and said, “I do not care what you are going to do with them. But do anything…”
